This section describes the book Circadian Physiology, written by Dr. Refinetti.
Circadian Physiology is a comprehensive but easy-to-read book on circadian rhythms that is targeted at life scientists and health practitioners who are not specialists in biological rhythms. The book is accessible to researchers, clinicians, and general readers and is well suited as a textbook for courses on biological rhythms. Published by CRC Press (a member of the Taylor & Francis Group), the first edition came out in December 1999, the second edition in October 2005, and the third edition in April 2016.
